Savage Roles: Exemplar

Watermarked PDF

Creating a Savage Worlds characters can be a daunting task for both new and veteran players. Players often look for guidance on creating a character with a specific function in their party.
This product line introduces two concepts to facilitate that need: Role and Class. A Role provides instructions on how to build a character to fulfill a broad function on the battlefield. If you are looking for further specialization, a Class builds upon the foundation of a Role. Classes provide a more specific vision of how a character performs their chosen function. 

This supplement introduces the Exemplar Role and the subsequent Warlord and Oracle Classes. The Exemplar excels at inspiring, buffing, and supporting their party. An Exemplar may not independently dominate combat, but they ensure their allies can take on any challenge. If you enjoy playing a character who makes the party better than the sum of its parts, the Exemplar is for you. Although they have a fantasy setting feel, they can easily be adapted for use in other settings.

It's weird to read that it includes two classes for a system that is class-less. How is this done? I like the idea of the many new edges as well as the advice on character concept building. The mention of classes just threw me a bit.
Is it handled like the Savage worlds Rifts Iconic Frameworks, with acertain number of abilities front loaded?

Hi Patrick! Great inquiry! How it works could be best described as an 'Edge Tree'. For example, if I have an Exemplar character and I want to continue on to the Warlord class I need to take two qualifying Edges. Once those are taken, I have about 10 Warlord Edges that branch out that I gain access to; take as many or as little as you want (in whatever order). You can also do 'normal' level ups instead (base Edges, skills, etc.), you aren't locked into anything. Hopefully that helps!

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
